SOFTWARE COMPATIBILITY – You will need Illustrator to use this product. An Affinity Designer version of the pack is available HERE

I recently took a trip down memory lane and, while sorting through old school and art college sketchbooks, re-discovered a love for the fine-liner. I used to spend more hours than I probably should have making patterns, shapes and doodles. I soon realised that there was no brush set that would allow me to return to these roots and do this digitally in Adobe Illustrator.

The Artifex Forge is therefore pleased to present this authentic and versatile tool kit, which includes a huge range of different pen marks – straight and rough outlines, dots and dashes, stippling, hatching, zigzags and more.

Most of the brushes use the pattern brush feature, which tiles a section along the stroke meaning that the brushes don’t over-stretch on long strokes, streamlining the drawing process and saving you time. I’ve also included a few outline art brushes for shorter sections. Finally, there’s a set of seamless, repeat patterns, which I designed to fill large areas quickly.

The pack contains all of these fantastic components:

  • The Brushes

9 Stipple Brushes.
7 Dot and dash pattern brushes.
4 Scribble and zigzag pattern brushes.
1 Outline pattern brush – use it for medium and long strokes.
12 Short outline art brushes.
5 Star and cross pattern brushes.
8 Star and cross scatter brushes.
3 Parallel line brushes.
4 Hatched line brushes.
3 Tapered line brushes.

If you are a tablet user, you’ll be pleased to know that a version of the brushes with pressure sensitivity enabled is included. Please note: This feature is available for CS5, CS6 and CC only.

  • The Fine liner Patterns

In ten varieties. Use these to fill large areas quickly.

  • A Quick Reference Guide

This will help you quickly find the right brushes for the task in hand.

  • Example Files

A selection of the preview images. Use these to see how I achieved the look.

  • Instructions

A very thorough guide on how to load, apply and then adjust the brushes is supplied.

Please note! This product is compatible with Illustrator CS4 to CC only.

    Fantastic pack, purchased it well over a year ago and Iā€™m still using it today. Jeremy was also very helpful when I had a question about one of his brushes, and managed to help me create the exact effect I wanted. Definitely recommend it!
